Understanding the Meaning Behind some Solar Terms


Inverters, tier 1 panels, maximum power point tracker…what does it all mean 😦?! Here’s the truth about the solar industry – it can be a minefield of marketing jargon. Understanding the different parts of solar can be incredibly overwhelming, so here’s a quick overview of the most commonly used terms in solar installations ⬇️. ✅ Tier 1 panels – these type of panels does not necessarily mean good quality; it refers only to the tier system created by Bloomberg as a way of rating solar panel manufacturers. ✅ Data Sheets – these are every customer’s friend. Data sheets allow you to compare and contrast the performance and quality of panels/ inverters. ✅ Inverters: an inverter converts direct current (DC) generated by the solar panel to alternating current (AC) for use in your home. DC String Inverters are used with the most common solar systems. We break down these terms further in our free solar resource. To learn more, drop us an email on [email protected]
